There was a nice young fellow at the sales stand who just graduated from the Horticulture program at OSU studying Viticulture and Enology. He is starting a job at a local winery in the fall. We wished him good luck.
We headed out to the trees and ended up picking 33 lbs. in no time as the fruit was so abundant. Of course, Ciaran picked the most cherries. He went off by himself and climbed into the top of a tree and went to work. Picking cherries is his favorite u-pick. He didn’t eat any until he had a full bucket. He made up for it later though.
We love going to Me and More. It is a very well cared for orchard and the folks are pleasant to talk with. We headed back home to get to work pitting the haul. See next post for more on that.
